University of New Haven
The University of New Haven, founded on the Yale campus in 1920, is a private, coeducational university situated on the coast of southern New England. It’s a diverse and vibrant community of more than 6,800 students, with campuses around the country and around the world. They are proud to be a university that’s continuously growing and making positive changes for their students and the community. Their achievements are a testament to their dedicated faculty and staff and the cutting-edge programs they develop, their talented students, who continue to be engaged members of the community, and their alumni, who consistently become leaders in their chosen fields. The University of New Haven is a coeducational, non-sectarian, independent institution of higher learning, chartered by the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut. The University is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the New England Association indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation. Since its founding on the Yale University campus in 1920, the University of New Haven has steadily grown to become a thriving, top-tier comprehensive university and a national leader in experiential education. As globalization makes their world more interconnected, the University continues to examine and refine their vision of serving a broader global constituency, and to launch ventures abroad in order to reflect and accommodate the needs of students worldwide.
Within its five colleges, students immerse themselves in a transformative, career-focused education across the liberal arts and sciences, fine arts, business, engineering, public safety, and public service. They offer more than 100 academic programs, all grounded in a long-standing commitment to collaborative, interdisciplinary, project-based learning. Here, the experience of learning is both personal and pragmatic, guided by a distinguished faculty who care deeply about individual student success. As leaders in their fields, faculty members provide the inspiration and recognition needed for students to fulfil their potential and succeed at whatever they choose to do. The University of New Haven's main campus is located in West Haven, Connecticut. Founded in 1920 on the campus of Yale University in cooperation with Northeastern University, the University of New Haven moved to its current West Haven campus in 1960. Situated on 82 acres atop a hill overlooking the New Haven skyline with views of Long Island Sound, this residential campus is conveniently located a mile north of Interstate 95 between Boston and New York City. The campus has experienced significant growth in the last decade with more than 220 million in construction projects completed or underway. Examples include three new residential halls, the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science in Gehring Hall, the David A. Beckerman Recreation Center and Ralph F. DellaCamera Stadium, which features the only blue and gold artificial sprint turf in the nation.
